Accolades

Cabernet Sauvignon, Wisdom Estate Vineyard

  • 2014

    • Dan Berger's Vintage Experiences

      This Cabernet Sauvignon blend from a careful selection of the winery’s own property is the best red wine the family-owned property has ever made. Loaded with a solid core of varietal character and traces of French oak aging notes, it carries all of the richness one could want in an otherwise structured (3.69 pH) red wine. The winery, now celebrating its 90th anniversary (!), has never charged this much for a wine, but it is completely justified by the taste and potential. A simply terrific wine and a very fair price. Best in six to 10 more years. Printable
